The Osun state police command has arrested Tobiloba Jolaosho, a filmmaker better known as King Tblak HOC, for allegedly recording a sex movie at the Osun-Osogbo sacred grove.
Jolaosho was said to have shot the movie in July dressed like an adherent of Osun, the Yoruba goddess of fertility, with a woman who was completely naked.
The filmmaker, popular for producing pornographic movies, had reportedly shared the video on social media thereafter — a development which generated heated controversies.
Opalola Yemisi, the command’s public relations officer, who confirmed Jolaosh’s arrest, said the porn star would be arraigned in court if found wanting when investigation into the matter is completed.
Yemi Elebuibon, a follower of the deity, said Jolaosho had desecrated the grove, which was a sacred land where worshippers across the country offer prayers and sacrifices to the Osun goddess.
“The traditional worshippers in charge of the grove will decide on what punishment to mete out to him, after the police concludes its investigation,” BBC quoted Elebuibon, who is known as the Araba of Osogbo, to have said.
The sacred grove was declared a world heritage site in 2003.

THEARTER: Daniel Kpodoh thrills Port Harcourt with a new spin of Ola Rotimi’s ‘Gods Are Not to Blame’
Frozen from months of COVID-19 lockdown warmth is returning to theaters, galleries, stages and other venues as restrictions continue to be eased.
Famous comedian Angel ‘d’ laff, warmed the hearts of the audience followed by a serving of sonorous music supplied by the drama group as Ola Rotimi ‘s The Gods Are Not to Blame took the center stage in the Garden City of Port Harcourt on the 13th and 14th May 2021, at the prestigious The Arena event center.
The stunning adaptation of Ola Rotimi’s classic The Gods Are Not to Blame by Daniel Kpodoh gave the ageless story a new spin with a fresh perspective, keeping the theater lovers on the edge of their seats as the drama rolled out.
Daniel Kpodoh’s rendition is infused with a generous display of Yoruba culture in costumes, parables and incantations combined with the musical style to keep pulses racing across the theater.
With unique dance steps created by the director, the play placed the spotlight on the rich Yoruba culture with an emphasis on deities like Sango, Orunmila, Ifa, and Ogun –as King Odewale, King Adetusa (Odewale’s father), Queen Ojuola (Odewale’s mother), Aderopo (Odewale’s brother), the Chiefs and other characters in the book refer to them often.
Odewale’s character as acted by Amaebi Ekiye who experienced different phases of confusion, almost painful in its helplessness, that the viewers will become sympathetic to his plight, cursing fate for dealing him with such a heavy hand.
Odewale was in touch with his supernatural side, and was quick to call on Ogun, swearing on the deity which eventually led to his downfall.
It was also an interesting play to see how Odewale’s destiny led him back home, especially when he turned out to be a good ruler of his people. The Gods Are Not to blame is full of irony, despair, and disillusions. At the end, one is left with a ringing conclusion – one can never outrun fate.
The play the God’s are not to Blame as acted by DAl productions and the theater clan was a massive success with every act on stage giving a very good account of themselves.
Some dignitaries who graced the event include Pastor and mrs Olawale Arije, Pastor &mrs Abayomi Akinwole, Micheal kpodoh (art lord gallery), Michael Ogolo, Endy Ojo Abas, Deborah job, Kio London, Angel attah (angel the laugh), Kunle Tatafo, Dr Ovunda Ihunwo(NANTAP chairman rivers state), Iyowuna Obomanu, Clarizza Tammy, clarizza Tammy (KAFRICODIP ), Sunday Edum,and Florence Ekiye
